Blue Legacy

Blue Legacy is an initiative started in 2008 by Alexandra Cousteau to engage individuals around the world through telling the story of our water planet. Blue Legacy works to:

— help shape society’s dialogue to include water as one of the defining issues of our century;

— inspire people to take action on critical water issues in meaningful ways. 

EXPEDITION: BLUE PLANET is the first major initiative of Blue Legacy to build and engage audiences around the world. It is a global exploration, traveling across five continents to more than eight locations chronicling the interconnectivity of global water issues to document how they impact lives. As of July 2009, EXPEDITION: BLUE PLANET has covered stories in India, Botswana, the West Bank, Israel, Jordan, the Mississippi River, the Gulf of Mexico, the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C., and Cambodia.
